the united states government and egyptian government are friends, not enemies? >> ( translated ): we are not enemies, of course. >> rose: you're our friends? >> ( translated ): for sure we are friends. >> rose: allies? >> the u.s. president said otherwise. >> rose: i know he did. but i'm asking the egyptian president. do you consider the united states an ally? >> ( translated ): this is depending on the definition of an ally. we have a real partnership in the interest and we want to achieve the interest of the world and to participate in many issues-- diplomatic, political, economical-- exchange of expertise in several areas. so the understanding of an ally as a part of a military alliance this is not existing right now. but if you mean by ally, partner and special diplomatic relationship and cooperation we are that ally. >> rose: president morsi for the hour. next. >> tonight a special edition of charlie rose. >> rose: mohamed morsi won an historic election this june to become the fifth president of egypt. he is the first civilian to hold this title. two years ago it would have been
of saudi intelligence, ambassador to the united states and other countries >> a throughou these 80 some years that we have had our kingdom, everybody keeps talking about an uncertain future for the kingdom and because of the sagacity of the people of saudi arabia and the good will of the leadership and the government we have survived pretty well so far we have many problems to face, including syria. many challenges internal among the ung pele and how the go about the courses of development not just economically but socially and politically and the role of women, etc. all of these are tremendous challenges that are being debated within the kingdom and not coming from the outside. >> rose: tom friedman and prince turki al-faisal when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: tom friedman is here, he is a pulitzer prize winning columnist in for the "new york times." for more than 30 years he's been writing ant foreign affairs, american politics and so much more. in addition to serving as bureau chief in beirut
's many and the other is that jesus isn't just for christians in the united states, christis love jesus but so do buddhists and jews and hindus and people without any religion whatsoever. >> the jesus image is multiadaptble because we are a 3489 religious nation. >> that's right, we're a multireligious nation but also a christian nation where 80% or so of the country are christians and they put jesus on the national agenda and then people of all different religions and without any at all respond to that figure. >> why did thomas jefferson become consumed with revising the bible by omitting a lot of it in his own text of the bible as you began your book with? >> wl, presumably it's not because he didn't have anything else to do, i mean, he was a pretty busy guy in the white house but he ordered a couple books from england, a couple bibles and he sat there in the white house and he cut and pasted and took out the miracles and took out the resurrection. he believed jesus was a good guy, he believed he was one of the most important philosophers ever but he didn't like christianity and he wa
as banker to the united states government. some see it as a source of leverage, but others see chinese holdings of u.s. debt as an investment with little return. >> it's not invested in their own country. it hasn't been given to their own people. it's a gigantic waste of money. and really, it does not give china verage over the u.s., becausif they us it, they'd only be shooting themselves in the foot. so, in that respect, i think it's as much a symbol of a weak imbalances in the chinese economy as it is of chinese power. >> reporter: and even if the chinese government wanted to sell off u.s. treasuries, it's not clear it could find a buyer. >> the bigger problem is if they announced that they were simply not going to participate in the next treasury auction or the next three or four treasury auctions. that would produce something of a scramble to see who would participate. the result would probably be some increase in interest rates here. >> reporter: but even that seems likely to hurt china as much or more than the united states. china buys u.s. treasuries to recycle the dollars it ma
against the united states without some consequencesment now that authority has been removed. the imams and other speakers at fridayrayers are fee to s almt whatever they want. and that makes the situation far more dangerous. >> protests and deaths in the middle east. and political implications in america when we continue. >> funding for charlie rose was provided by the following: . >> rose: additional funding provided by these funders captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. in this presidential election of 2012 foreign policy was not considered to be an important ctor. that all chandnow because on monday night when american diplomatic interests came under attack in egypt and libya, tragically ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in benghazi, governor romney has attempted to make some political attacks out of the situation. and here is what he said. >> i think it's a-- a -- -- a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> rose: president obama responded in kind in a conversation
with a film made in the u.s. that ridicules the prophet mohammad. >> i have made it clear the united states had nothing to do with this video. it is an insult to muslims but america as well, that i have witnessed after nearly four years as president. i remain ever hopeful all right world that we live in. the war in iraq is over. american troops have come home. al qaeda's been weakened. and osama bin laden is no more. >> obama took the podium six weeks before the u.s. presidential election. he spent much of his time defending his record on foreign policy. >>> to coincide with the open egg ofhe general asell blame, british charity has released a video report on children in syria who are suffering from the escalating violence. many syrian children are haunted by the memory of seeing family members killed in front of their eyes. they have observed children becoming overaggressive. some have injured themselves due to severe psychological wounds. they say a school in the syrian capital, damascus, was bombed on tuesday and children's lives are at risk. the video report shows children sheltering in
, for responding to this video with violence. >> woodruff: clinton also sought again to distance the united states' government from the film and its maker. the associated press reported that he's been identified as a coptic christian living in california with a checkered legal past. actors in the film said that they were duped, that the blasphemous and offensive dialogue was later dubbed in. and not just muslims, but coptic christians in cairo denounced the film and its apparent intent. >> ( translated ): if it is proven that there is a copt that participated in the making of this movie, the church 100% refuses him. >> woodruff: there were efforts to remove the video from view. the government of afghanistan tried to block youtube access. and in egypt and libya, youtube restricted users from playing the clip. meanwhile, american naval and military assets in the mediterranean, including warships and drone aircraft, refocused on lya, a counry they helped liberate last year as part of a u.n.-sanctioned, nato operation. >> woodruff: nancy yousseff of mcclathy newspapers. she has been reporting on the a
, to the flag of the united states of america, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. ( cheers and applause ) >> thank you! >> ifill: that was followed by saxophonist branford marsalis performing the national anthem. ray suarez is on the floor now among the delegates, where he's been each night this week. >> suarez: you know, gwen, one of the biggest events of this week is something that isn'tingt going to happen, the long-expected and long-planned-for stadium welcome for president obama tomorrow night where he would give his acceptance speech. because of threatening skies, that has been canceled and moved indoors to the arena where the rest of the convention has been held. well, it means some inconvenience for the people who were set to appear there. it means some inconvenience for the people who were staging the event, but the real problem is with the tens of thousands of people who gave tens of thousands of volunteer hours in order to qualify for a ticket to see the president accept the nomination of his party for anot
's got the uwe united states out of iraq. the united states after going up has now come down to some extent in afghanistan. he mdleast,ven though it's turbulent, is more open than it was. so i think the president in general can point to some areas where he moved forward and some areas obviously his critics will say where he movedded back. all in all it's a defense i believe and defendable record. >> ifill: i want to walk through some of that piece by piece. referencing the president's speech today, he turned over a big chunk of it to talking about the difference between railing against or speaking out against violence... violent extremism versus protecting free speech. why was so much devoted to that topic? >> gwen, i thought it was an interesting speech. very reflective speech. i think probably designd by the president and his advisors to try to heal some of the wounds that have been so apparent between the muslim world and the united states over these last two weeks, these very tragic weeks. i thought it was interesting the way he framed the issue. he clearly disassociated the unit
united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> woodruff: but iran's president, mahmoud ahmadinejad, has long insisted that the country's nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes. and during his own speech yesterday, he denounced potential military action by israel. >> testing new generations of ultra-modern weaponry and the pledge to disclose these armaments in due time is now being used as a new language of threat against nations to coerce them into accepting a new era of hegemony. continued threats by the uncivilized zionists to resort to military action against our great nation is a clear example of this bitter reality. >> woodruff: earlier this week, iran unveiled a new long-range reconnaissance drone and the country's revolutionary guard said it tested new missiles as well. prime minister netanyahu noted that while international sanctions by the u.s. and other countries have hurt the iranian economy, they did not stop its nuclear program. >> there's only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs. and that's by placing a
's accomplished. that and more tonight on "n.b.r."! trade tensions between the united states and china are heating up again. this morning, the two countries challenged each other in the world trade organization. the u.s. is accusing china of illegally subsidizing auto and auto parts exports, and hurting u.s. made goods. and china claims trade laws here, open the door for illegal tariffs on a wide range of chinese products. sylvia hall breaks down what's behind the latest flareup. >> reporter: here in the u.s., the auto and auto parts industries employ about 800,000 american workers. the government says those workers are hurt by the money china gives to subsidize its own auto industry. and in ohio, a key swing state fueled by cars, president obama promised a crack down: >> these are subsidies tt directly harm working men and women on the assembly lines in ohio and michigan and across the midwest. it is not right, it is against the rules, and we will not let it stand. >> reporter: the administration said that between 2009 and 2011, the chinese government offered up at least $1 billion in subsidies t
the temperature cool. nay are actively working behind the scenes. >> i know the government of the united states is quietly talking japan and china. we have failed our growing relationship with china. >> amitage view reflects growing concern among american officials. the u.s. government remain a neutral stance. because japan controls the territory japan u.s. security treaty extends to the islands. chinese vessels have been navigating the waters around the island. japan coast guard crews have been keeping an eye on them. obviousers fear an absence of dialogue and the crisis mechanism could lead to unintended consequences which could mean the united states would not be able to stay neutral. >> japan and china are said to mark 40 years. organizers have cancelled a number of events. government officials celebrated the friendship year for japan china people to people exchanges. as of thursday 29 events in both countries have been cancelled or postponed. japan airlines reports that about 12,000 seats for its group tour bookings have been cancelled. some car dealerships in china have scrapped their pla
further monetary policy to boost the united states economy. after last friday's disappointing labor report there is a growing call for a robust response from the central bank which is the fed, financial markets have rallied with the expectation of a third round of bond buying known as cuan tative easing. but that option is controversial with the election two months away. joining me from washington david leonhardt, washington bureau chief of the "new york times". in 2011 he won a pulitzer prize rhis columns on the u.s. economy. i'm pleased to have him back on this program. >> thank you, charlie. >> rose: so what might the fed do and what consequences might happen? >> well, the fed is now talking about doing a version of something it has already done a couple timesment people may have heard the phrase q e3 to refer to what this is n technical terms that is quantitative easing 3. let's skip the technical terms, in essence it would buy up assets. in the course of buying up assets it would try to reduce long-term interest rate short trem interest rates are already essentily at zero, the fed mov
swear. >> i will execute the office to the office of the president united states faithfully. >> that i will execute. >> faithfully the -- the office -- >> the office the united states faithfully. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the united states. >> preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the united states. >> so help you god. >> so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> rose: the problem. >> the problem was the phrase do so legally swear, because obama .. jumped in after barack hussein obama, i do not had said solemnly swear would be in that first stanza, but .. obama didn't know that so they were off kilter from the very beginning and then you saw roberts really just sort of lost his place. >> rose: and had a bit of -- thre was so worry that the new president was not officially the new president? >> well, that is the next day story. of course in the -- all the excitement of the inaugural balls, no one thought much about it, the next morning, a young lawyer in the off
of the world live in the united states. and we are a consumer goods company, so we sell to where people are and, therefore, when you expect that there is or than 95 percent of the population of the world live outside of the united states you would spec we would have a large business outside of the united states. >> rose: is it primarily coca-cola or is it not the company but the drink or is it all kind of water products that seem mohr in demand than ever? >> i think we talk, we just -- >> rose: what makes the people outside of the united states -- >> we look at ourselves as the number one and premiere beverage company in the world and we have -- we offer 3,000 products, 500 more than, 500 brands and choice i think is the key. >> rose: but how is that change something it has to be changing, is the produc mix change something aren't you finding the demand for things you weren't making five years ago? >> yes, and that's why i think choice is great. you have to offer consumers choice. see, what we have -- the way the world has changed is that for the first time in the history of our planet there ar
the united states of america. and if i'm elected president of this country, i will get us back on a road of growth and prosperity and strength. >> woodruff: today at a campaign event in washington, president obama shared a message of what he called "economic patriotism" tied to a strong middle class. >> but our problems can be solved, our challenges can be met. we've still got the workers in the world, the best universities, the best scientists, the best... we got the best stuff. ( laughter ) we just got to bring it together. >> woodruff: consumer confidence is higher of late, and the president may be getting a boost from voter attitudes. an nbc news/"wall street journal" poll out last week found 42% of americans think the economy will improve in the next year. that's six points higher than a month ago. 18% say the economy will worsen, and almost a third expect it to stay the same. the obama campaign is also pointing to some revised job numbers to make its case. the u.s. bureau of labor statistics said yesterday there were nearly 400,000 more jobs created in the previous year that ended
in mexico and the united states. there was very little effort to interdict the weapons to stop them from going across the bordeand, of course, with the deh ofgentryan try and other deaths, we see what the consequences are. >> brown: so the key questions became-- of course, it became a political issue, who is responsible for this, how much were the white house and the attorney general's office involved? so what does the report tell us? >> well, the harshest criticism comes down for an official in the criminal division, his name is jason weinstein. he resigned yesterday under pressure. and essentially he is called out for repeatedly having access to docents, wirap apliction for instance, he had-- he read summaries of and perhaps didn't read all of it and didn't ask follow-up questions. the inspector general says that, you know, if he knew about an earlier operation called "wide receiver" in the bush administration. now, that was 2006 and 2007 and allowed about 400 firearms to be trafficked. and weinstein finds out about this in early 2009 and instead of making sure it didn't happen again,
for her first official visit to the united states. her trip comes as the obama administration considers lifting remaining economic sanctions against her country. on wednesday she accepted the congressional medal of honor and met with president obama for the first time. i spoke with her earlier today at the plaza hotel here in new york. and here is that conversation. >> rose: thank you for taking time in a very busy schedule to see us. >> pleasure. >> rose: i have two simple questions. where are you in your life at this moment? and where is your country? >> well, they're not simple questions at all. they're the most difficult questions to answer. if you are asking where i am, of course, i can say i am here. but i think my couny and i, we are all at the beginning of the path to democracy. i've often said that this is something that we'll have to construct for ourselves. it's not there smooth and waiting it is something that we have to build up as we go along. >> rose: why dow believe that's true now? >> because we have been given the chance to do it. previously we were not given the chanc
, but i don't know how true it is representative for the united states. >> let's try a few names here. you have put here on your cover both the condition and the drug that might meet the condition. bumped into ex-girlfriend, viagra. big dinner to organize. ritalin. chewed out by the boss, perk s set. n won't te to toilet training, valium. hate to socialize, have to socialize, paxil. time to kick back, vicodin. is that a gray hair? valium? husband wants some space:pin. clonopin. >> had too many cocktails. viagra. what else do we have here. i'm reading a few. got seventh parking ticket this month, xanax. got rejection slip from publisher. vicodin. deadline pushed up, ritalin. always a bridesmaid -- zoloft. i'm almost through. i want to read some more of these. i swear this has never happened to me before. viagra. ex is dating a celebrity. paxil. and a few more. so you see what we're talking about here, people just pop these drugs. not only do they pop them, but they trade in them, do they not? >> they do trade them. first of all, i should say we're trying to be amusing. the vast majority of
give the order tha the united states is ready to launch a strike. of course, the israeli counter question was, okay, when would that happen? if iran does not submit to any of the international demand, will you strike? at that point the american administration in all the talks, high-ranking officials have declined on giving any sort of specific promise. >> warner: how does the u.s. election calendar play into prime minister netanyahu's calculations here? >> wel i think itlaysuite heavily. prime minister netanyahu would never admit that. but we see a line of increasing tension. some of it is deliberately between the israeli government and the american administration. as close as we get to the election. it is clear that the white house asked israel and put quite a lot pressure not to launch a pre-emptive strike at least not before the elections in order not to create an oil crisis that would damage the obama campaign. on the other hand we know from quite close ties between the republican mitt romney and prime minister netanyahu. i think that netanyahu, close as we get to the electio
of tactical mistakes, but, charlie, this is something the progressives in the united states have been trying to achieve since the progressive party bull moose party platform of 1912, 100 years, seven presidents tried, including some republicans, none succeeded until barack obama. and i asked the president, your advisors were against this, why did you do it? and he said, well i told nancy pelle cy i may not get re-elected if i did this and so i repeated the question, why did you do it. >> if we didn't do it now it wouldn't have happened and to me that is the mark of a president who is showing leadership. you might not like it. >> rose: yes. >> but it is leadership. >> rose: i would say the following, john, i hear you and i know all of that, i have heard that conversation, i believe with a that even though he said i might not get re-elected he didn't for a moment believe that he would not get re-elected because his own confidence in himself was so strong. >> absolutely true. yes, he is extremely self-confident individual. >> even at this moment he understands intellectually the challenge and
not received the assurances it was looking for from the administration that the united states (no audio) take military action if other diplomatic effort have failed. >> warner: when the israelis talk about a red line, what is it exactly they want? what do they want president obama to say or do? >> i'm not sure tat the israelis are speaking... seeking for a public promise. i'm quite certain that israel would (no audio) secretly. but to show israel that if diplomatic efforts and connection with iran in the next, i would say, six months to nine months fail, then an iran (no audio) would not agree to stop the enrichment and disassemble the nuclear site. then the administration would go f oth optionsnclung the military strike. these red lines that the secretary of state, as we heard, refused to make secretly and publicly are the ones that would relax israel satisfied. as long as the administration intentionally is very vague on that and does not want to promise any sort of military action in the coming future, i think that we are going to see an ongoing tension increasingly between the two adminis
a lot of the same problems that we have here in the united states. >> ifill: is there also a problem with coming to some sort of resolution as far as germany and other bank-- money-- money givers go? that somebody else is going to get in line. that if you give greece money, spain is going to be standing there. if you give spain money portugal could be standing there. >> there is this problem of political moral hazard going on which is really, as you say, well, if you give us, let's say, debt relief to greece, well, then you can be pretty sure that other european countries that also have received bailouts will want the same treatment. so what you're trying to do in europe, in minute, is really to-- i believe that ultimately debt relief will have-- further debt relief will have to be given to greece by the euro area governments. but they're really trying to make the road to that so arduous and so terrible that nobody else in europe will really want to go down that ute. an as we'r looking at greece today-- which has a cumulative decline in g.d.p. of, you know, close to 20% and still dro
international pressure. there were preemptive strikes on neighboring countries. the united states and other nations are staging what they call the largest ever joint mission in the persian gulf. >> translator: our negotiating stance has opinion that if western countries provide us with 20% enriched yuranium we have no intention of producing it. i hope they will remain at the negotiating table. >> reporter: he wants to open international talks on the issue. he has just tried to buy time but the sanction hitting the country hard. ahmadinejad is scheduled to speak to the u.n. wednesday. it will be his last to general assembly before his term ends next year. it's going to be his last major task to repair international relations and iran's struggling economy. few expect that to happen. nhk world, new york. >> the drill u.s. forces are leading in the persian gulf. 34 nations are taking part. we went aboard a ship and japanese mine sweeper to bring us this first hand look. >> reporter: this u.s. navy support ship was built 41 years ago and was due to be decommissioned earlier this year. the vessel
it become a genuine crisis. it's also a reminder to the united states of why it is seen as important by many nations in asia that we stay as a balancing factor in the military relationship there >> warner: china doesn't like that >> they would prefer it to having japan arm itself. so everybody resents the u.s. presence but is more comforting than the most obvious alternative > waer: you have a prediction? >> i think it will calm down but the issues will be simmering for some time. all the territorial maritime issues that are taking place now are of a peace. the political process is still playing out in china. the leaders there want to contain the damage to themselves but they don't want to be so suppressing of popular opinion that they're seen as opposing popular will on the issue of sovereignty >> warner: or out of touch. doug paal and jim fall owes, thank you. >> woodruff: next, seeking peace in syria and around the globe. jeffrey brown talks to former u.n. secretary general kofi annan. >> brown: kofi annan's first career u.n. staffer to rise to head the organization has spent more than 4
, he worked to pass campaign finance reform. as a united states senator, he was critical and to the passing of ethics and lobbying reform after the jack abramoff scandal. he refused to take contributions from registered lobbyists or political action committees. and as a presidential candidate, he promised to, quote, "tell the corporate lobbyists that their days of setting the agenda in washington are over." >>> i am in this race to tell the corporate lobbyists that their days of settg the agenda in washington are over. i have done more than any other candidate in this race to take on lobbyists, and won. they have not funded my campaign, they will not work in my white house, and they will not drown out the voices of the american people when i am president. >> and his own convention, was crawling with lobbyists schmoozing with politicians. and now, rahm emanuel has been turned loose by the president to go for the gold. did you suggest earlier that he didn't have a cice? that with the great accumulation of money by the republicans, he had to match them in order to be a viabl
. >> for the first time in centuries the president of the united states has officially declared himself an enemy of traditional marriage between one man and one woman. >> you are witness to a modern tale of resurrection. a second-coming. the bible speaks of lazarus, raised by jesus from the grave to walk again among the living. ralph reed, too, has been returned to life, political life. but he goes lazarus one further. lazarus was a poor man. reed is rich, and he just keeps getting richer from mixing religion and politics. and that's a story you don't want to miss. at age 33, ralph reed was the christian right's wonder boy. anointed in a 1995 "time" magazine cover story as the "right hand of god" for spinning the trust of conservative christians into political gold. it was reed who built the christian coalition of televangelist pat robertson into a powerful arm of the republican party. >> as religious conservatives we have finally gained what we have always sought. a place at the table, a sense of legitimacy and a voice in the conversation that we call democracy. >> in 2000, reed helped put geor
that were not done. simple, humanitarian acts that had not been done by the united states government or the government of the confederacy. so what i find so uplifting about it is watching as drew was saying this reonse which is profoundly human and speaks to what we all have inside ourselves. the desire to find something larger. not just in a beyond but a larger here and now. some larger sense of identity. some value in the real world that's beyond our own immediate reach. and you see that in a profound way in the civil war, the battlefields. >> rose: we have talked about some other battles. the get sees berg address said what about this? >> well, the get sees berg address read in the context of this understanding of death takes on a particular force in that what lincoln is really trying to do is say what are all these deaths for. and how do they redefine who we are as a people. these people who died that a nation might live so their deaths are the source of a nation's survival. that ties the nation so tightly to the sacrifice. but then he also talks about what the united states is f
, there is instincts, there's tough calls. >> mr. speaker, the president of the united states. >> woodruff: one of the criticisms of mr. obama's leadership is that he's had so much difficulty winning support from congress. many republicans say that's because he was too beholden to his democratic base. tom davis is a former g.o.p. congressman from virginia. >> when he got elected i think he had every intention of trying to bring everybody together behind him, let's work together, but he had a democratic congress. the minute you go over and sit down with the republicans you'll have pelosi and the democrats fighting saying "we won the election." so the pressure is for him to produce a work product and the republicans weren't going to follow over and say "oh, yeah, let's work together." it's tough situation. when your party controls both houses, those interest groups control the agenda. they don't want to give it away to the other side. >> reporter: but the number two democrat, dick durbin, said the president often took on leaders of his own party. he recounted a late night white house meeting on h
by the united states. >> fundamentally we do not take seriously the threats of an attack on iran by them even though we are iran. iran at the end of the day is a great country. let me assure you we do have all defensive means at our disposal. >> prime minister netanyahu has said that israel simply cannot stand to have iran to get to the point where it has enough enriched uranium to be able to very quickly convert that to weapons grade and really essentially from a weaon in a matter of months. he's made it clear that israel is prepared to take military action to try to prevent that. do you think he's bluffing? >> you see, whether he's bluffing or he really intends that does not even come into the equation. for us. what are these scientists? put a world map in front of you. put an at last in front of you. iran has been iran for the last 7,000-10,000 years. they have been occupying those territories for the last 60 to 70 years with the support and force of the westerners. they have no roots there in history. >> ifill: i'm joined by margaret warner who is at the u.n. this afternoon. margaret, tha
with the european debt crisis, and even within the united states, with it being an election year. >> reporter: but burberry says it has been talking to other luxury goods makers, so it knows it's not alone in seeing the slowdown. as a result, luxury good stocks like lvmh, tiffany, and coach also fell today, although they didn't get hit nearly as hard as burberry. it's not just luxury firms getting hurt by the global slowdown. many other bellwether firms have said revenues are suffering due to weaker sales in china, europe and elsewhere. in the s&p 500, there have been 88 negative pre-announcements for the third quarter so far, and only 20 positive ones. >> the number of negative pre- announcements we've received is the worst in over a decade. we've already seen analysts become very bearish on these companies. >> reporter: last week, chipmaker intel drastically reduced its sales forecast, warning consumers and businesses are buying fewer personal computers. the company also withdrew its full-year guidance, which is seen as a sign of extreme uncertainty. and fedex recently cut its earnings fore
